  • Brewers' Brad Boxberger: Bags eighth hold

    Boxberger tossed a scoreless seventh inning and picked up his eighth hold of the season in Tuesday's victory over the Reds.

    Boxberger needed just nine pitches to get through his inning of relief and put the Brewers in position to come away with the win. Both runs he has allowed this season came in the same outing, and he owns a sparkling 1.59 ERA, 0.71 WHIP and 10:1 K:BB over 11.1 innings across 13 appearances.

  • Brewers' Brad Boxberger: Another scoreless appearance

    Boxberger tossed a scoreless seventh inning and picked up his fifth hold of the season in Wednesday's victory over the Pirates.

    Boxberger, like he did last season, is operating directly in front of setup man Devin Williams and closer Josh Hader, and he has been stout thus far, giving up no runs and allowing just five runners to reach base in 7.1 innings over eight appearances.

  • Brewers' Brad Boxberger: Earns win Sunday

    Boxberger (1-0) gave up a hit and no walks while striking out one in a scoreless seventh inning to earn the win over the Cubs on Sunday.

    Boxberger made a career-high 71 relief appearances during his first year with the Brewers in 2021, and he began the 2022 season on a high note by picking up a win in his first outing. Josh Hader is firmly entrenched as Milwaukee's closer, but Boxberger picked up 23 holds last year while converting four of nine save chances. He'll continue to serve as a setup man alongside Devin Williams in 2022.

  • Brewers' Brad Boxberger: Back with Brewers on one-year deal

    Boxberger agreed to a one-year, $2.5 million contract with the Brewers on Sunday, Jeff Passan of reports.

    Coming off a strong season and with 81 career saves under his belt, Boxberger could have been a closer had he landed on a different team in free agency. However, he should reprise his role as a setup man in Milwaukee, barring any trades or injuries to Josh Hader and/or Devin Williams. Boxberger logged a 3.34 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 21.8 K-BB% in 64.2 innings last season. He also chipped in five wins and four saves across 71 appearances.

  • Brewers' Brad Boxberger: Takes loss in woeful outing

    Boxberger (5-4) took the loss in relief Sunday against the Cubs after allowing three runs on two hits and a walk. He didn't record a single out.

    Boxberger couldn't retire a single batter Sunday and delivered one of his worst outings of the campaign. He has now given up runs in three of his last six appearances. Boxberger owns a ballooned 17.36 ERA in just 4.2 innings through seven outings in September.

  • Brewers' Brad Boxberger: Ten straight scoreless appearances

    Boxberger tossed a clean seventh inning and picked up his 21st hold in Wednesday's victory over the Giants.

    Boxberger was tasked with facing the top three batters in the Giants' order after the Brewers took the lead in the seventh, and as he has done regularly, he came through with a clean frame. Boxberger has been brilliant for the Brewers, tossing 10 straight scoreless appearances and allowing an earned run only two times -- while posting a 0.74 ERA and 0.95 WHIP -- over his last 25 trips to the mound.

  • Brewers' Brad Boxberger: Handed third loss

    Boxberger (4-3) allowed a run on two hits and struck out one in one inning, taking the loss Sunday versus San Francisco.

    The right-hander allowed an RBI single to Tommy La Stella in the eighth inning, and that was the decisive play in the game. Boxberger's scoreless streak came to an end at 7.2 innings. He's seen a more significant role lately with Josh Hader on the COVID-19 injured list. Boxberger has a 2.66 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 58:21 K:BB with four saves, 15 holds and two blown saves in 47.1 innings overall.

  • Brewers' Brad Boxberger: Records two-out save

    Boxberger picked up his fourth save of the season Monday against the Pirates after tossing a scoreless outing, allowing one walk and striking out one in two-thirds of an inning.

    Boxberger entered the game after John Axford allowed two runs on two hits and a walk across one-third of an inning to begin the ninth, and while he walked Wilmer Difo, he closed things out by striking out Phillip Evans. This was Boxberger's fourth save of the season, but he only got the nod since Josh Hader is out due to the COVID-19 protocols.

  • Brewers' Brad Boxberger: Picks up win Friday

    Boxberger (4-2) pitched two perfect innings and struck out one to earn the win over Atlanta on Friday.

    Starter Corbin Burnes wasn't at his best, and Boxberger entered with two on and no outs in the fifth inning. The 33-year-old reliever escaped the jam without trouble and ended up with his first win since June 26. The right-hander has a 2.74 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 52:20 K:BB through 42.2 innings this season. He's added three saves and 13 holds, indicating he typically enters games later than he did Friday.

  • Brewers' Brad Boxberger: Should be available Wednesday

    Boxberger (shoulder) is expected to be available out of the bullpen for Wednesday's game against the Royals after he checked out fine following a throwing session Tuesday, Adam McCalvy of reports.

    The Brewers have stayed away from Boxberger for their past two games while he's dealt with a stiff right shoulder, but his ability to throw Tuesday without discomfort seemingly clears up any threat of him landing on the injured list. With 12 holds and three saves to go with a 3.03 ERA and 1.14 WHIP over 42 appearances this season, Boxberger has become a trusted late-inning arm for manager Craig Counsell.

  • Brewers' Brad Boxberger: Able to throw

    Boxberger (shoulder) played catch Tuesday so the team could evaluate him, Adam McCalvy of reports.

    Boxberger pitched in the first two games of the second half but left Saturday's contest with the shoulder issue. It's good news that he hasn't been shut down completely, but the Brewers won't know whether he needs a trip to the injured list until they see how his shoulder responds to the throwing session.

  • Brewers' Brad Boxberger: Good chance to avoid injured list

    Boxberger (shoulder) said following his Tuesday throwing session that he's confident he'll avoid a trip to the injured list, Adam McCalvy of reports.

    Boxberger exited Saturday's game after experiencing stiffness in his throwing shoulder. The right-hander threw Tuesday for the first time since the issue arose, and it sounds like he's trending toward remaining on the active roster. The right-hander seems very unlikely to pitch in Tuesday's game against Kansas City, but assuming he does indeed avoid the IL, a Wednesday return to the mound could be in the realm of possibility.

  • Brewers' Brad Boxberger: Day-to-day with shoulder stiffness

    Manager Craig Counsell said following Saturday's win over the Reds that Boxberger exited the contest with right shoulder stiffness, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Boxberger left after allowing a game-tying homer to Jonathan India in the bottom of the eighth inning. His velocity appeared to be down during the relief appearance, which makes sense given that he is dealing with a shoulder issue. The skipper labeled the right-hander day-to-day, so it remains to be seen if he'll be available for Sunday's series finale.

  • Brewers' Brad Boxberger: Exits Saturday with apparent injury

    Boxberger left Saturday's game against Cincinnati due to an undisclosed injury, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Boxberger entered with the Brewers leading 3-2 in the bottom of the eighth, but he quickly exited after allowing a game-tying homer to Jonathan India. Per Nightengale, the right-hander's velocity was down. Milwaukee will likely provide an update following Saturday's game, and until then, the reliever can be considered day-to-day.

  • Brewers' Brad Boxberger: Earns third save

    Boxberger allowed one hit over a scoreless ninth inning Sunday and picked up a save against Colorado.

    Boxberger worked around a two-out single by Trevor Story to finish off the 7-6 win Sunday. The 33-year-old has now converted all three of his save chances this season, including two in June. He owns a 3.03 ERA and a 31:8 K:BB through 29.2 innings.

  • Brewers' Brad Boxberger: Notches second save

    Boxberger allowed one hit in a scoreless ninth inning Friday, striking out one batter and earning a save over Arizona.

    Boxberger gave up a leadoff single to Carson Kelly but quickly finished off the next three batters to earn his first save since April 7. He's converted his only two save chances this season and has seven holds alongside a 3.04 ERA. He won't get regular looks in the ninth inning as long as Josh Hader is healthy and dealing.

  • Brewers' Brad Boxberger: Snags second win

    Boxberger threw a scoreless 10th frame and picked up the win in Monday's extra-inning victory over the Tigers.

    Boxberger spent the early portion of May working in middle relief, but he has played a more prominent role since the Brewers traded J.P. Feyereisen to the Rays on May 21, and that has resulted in him picking up two wins since that date. The veteran righty has allowed just one hit and posted a 6:2 K:BB in five scoreless innings over his last six appearances, so expect him to remain in the late-inning mix for the time being.

  • Brewers' Brad Boxberger: Picks up one-out win

    Boxberger (1-1) earned the win Sunday against the Reds, recording one strikeout and hitting one batter in one-third of an inning.

    Boxberger recorded the final out of the fifth inning after striking out Eugenio Suarez, though he had previously loaded the bases when he hit Tucker Barnhart with a pitch. This was Boxberger's first win of the campaign. He's given up runs in two of his last seven appearances and owns a 4.41 ERA and a 0.92 WHIP across 16.1 innings on the season.

  • Brewers' Brad Boxberger: Earns save in 10th inning

    Boxberger retired the only batter he faced to earn the save in Wednesday's 4-2 extra-inning win over the Cubs.

    Boxberger relieved J.P. Feyereisen with the bases loaded and two outs in the bottom of the 10th inning. The 32-year-old Boxberger got Ian Happ to fly out on six pitches to secure the Brewers' win. This was Boxberger's first save since the 2019 season when he played for the Royals. He has not allowed a baserunner nor recorded a strikeout in his first 1.1 innings this year. As long as Josh Hader is healthy, Boxberger shouldn't be expected to see many save chances.

  • Brewers' Brad Boxberger: Moves up to big club

    The Brewers selected Boxberger's contract from their alternate site Tuesday.

    Milwaukee created a spot for him on the 40-man roster and 26-man active roster, respectively, by transferring Justin Topa (elbow) to the 60-day injured list and trading Orlando Arcia to Atlanta. Boxberger appeared to have made a strong push for the Brewers' Opening Day roster coming out of spring training, but Milwaukee instead had him bide his time at the alternate site for a few days before a roster spot opened up. Though he has 77 career saves on his resume, Boxberger is expected to work in a middle-relief role for Milwaukee initially.
